Hi there! I'm lucky and very happy to work on making the Northern Netherlands a more diverse and inclusive place together with this wonderful team.
I coordinate our activities and look for ways in which companies from Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe can reach English-speaking jobseekers more successfully, and vice versa. Hopefully I'll meet you at one of our events!

Maartje de Jonge
Hi, my name is Maartje de Jonge I am the Business Advisor for Make it in the North. I have the privilege to visit companies and help them in different fields within their organisation. One of the areas is attraction and retention of employees.
Make It in the North is the platform where companies can showcase what they have to offer, which will attract the right talent to grow their business even more. And for talent to see what great companies are based in the area, which opens up a pool of opportunities.
